Hello there!
I am Ivy and I come from China. I am currently pursuing my master degree here at ESSEC in the Master SMIB program, with a special focus on Corporate Strategy.
As you may want to know, I used to study at Nankai University in China, majoring in accounting and finance. During my second year, I had the opportunity to go to the London School of Economics for an exchange program in the financial department.
Although I’ve already gained some knowledge and skills in corporate finance from my prior studies, I am always eager and passionate about exploring the current changes in different industries, thinking about challenges from a broader perspective and picking up inspirations from people of different backgrounds.

That’s part of the reason why I chose the Master SMIB, which embraces students from all kinds of educational backgrounds to achieve their career goals in diverse fields.
So far, what I have gained here in the Master SMIB can be described as abundant and informative, which is not only helpful for my career insights but also essential to build my own competencies. All of the courses and projects we have integrate with our future job development, which push all of us to constantly formulate and polish our goals, to dream big and achieve bigger.
In short, I am so proud to join this big SMIB community and continue to be surprised about the opportunities it offers.
Please feel free to contact me and ask whatever you want to know. I am always here to share my ideas with you!
